Lost business? See City Hall, says Bersih

Filed under: Politics — Hornbill Unleashed @ 8:01 AM

Thomas-Fann-beTraders who claim to have lost income because of the Bersih 5 rally yesterday should seek redress from Kuala Lumpur City Hall, leaders of the Bersih reform group said today.

Bersih 2.0 steering committee member Thomas Fann said some traders had closed their shops on orders of City Hall.

“City Hall directed them to close the shops. So City Hall is responsible for the loss. They should make claims from DBKL. Those who kept their business open, it was filled with yellow t-shirts (participants) ordering food,” he said at a press conference today.

A hawkers’ association was reported to have said their members suffered lost business amounting to RM500,000 in Jalan Masjid India, the vicinity of Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman and other parts of the city.

However, Malaysian Indian Progressive Association secretary general S Bharathidasan said traders in Bangsar and elsewhere had enjoyed brisk business with passing rally-goers stopping in for meals..

“There was a long queue of people waiting to buy food and for empty seats. In fact some of the traders said Bersih should hold rallies more often because their business doubled.”

  1. City Hall should go to Padang Merbuk to see those rubbish left behind by the red shirts on Saturday.
    Please bill Jamal Yunus Ikan Bakar Sdn Bhd for the cleaning fees.
